March Updates

We would like to provide you with an update of our 2014-2015 fundraising goal, afterschool programs, and share some exciting events that are coming soon:

Fundraising Goal
Our fundraising goal for the 2014-2015 school year is $20,000.  This money will be used for in-class programs, continued subsidy of the afterschool programs, and for the fulfillment of teacher requests.  As of February 28th, we have raised $6,919!  With some fun events lined up between now and the end of the year, we are well on our way to reaching our goal!

Afterschool Programs
The second session of afterschool enrichment programs is well underway.  Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re happy to announce that the Foundation is currently planning for the third, and final, session of the school year.  Classes will be targeted to begin in mid-May.  More information to come!

March Events
Taste of Mira Mesa – The Foundation will proudly represent our school by selling tickets to the 10th Annual Taste of Mira Mesa event.  For every ticket purchased in support of Ericson, the school receives $10!  Tickets purchased before March 17th are $35, or $40 at the door (ticket price includes one drink).  Please note that this is an adults-only event.  To purchase tickets online, please go to: Taste of Mira Mesa Registration.  Don’t forget to select Ericson Elementary School as the school you are supporting!

Vittles for Vikings at Chuck E Cheese – Let’s celebrate the start of Spring Break at Chuck E. Cheese!  Join us March 27th to raise money for Ericson Elementary.  Flyers will be distributed prior to the event.

Save the Date!  Our Annual Jog-a-Thon will be held on May 22nd.  Last year we raised over $14,000!  We believe this year will be just as successful, if not more!  More information will be sent home with your child in early May.

Additionally, we are seeking volunteers to help out on the day of Jog-a-Thon.  Please click the following link to view the spots available:

We hope that you have a wonderful spring break!  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
